The Best of Zambia

7 nights

Safari Overview

Zambia is known for being one of Africa’s hidden gems. The country offers a unique, authentic taste of Africa, along with a rich game experience and the most picturesque scenery. We have curated the perfect itinerary to give you the most memorable safari experience at two of our most luxurious lodges.

Thorntree River Lodge is one of our most luxurious camps in Zambia. Gracefully located on the banks of the mighty Zambezi, the lodge offers the most scenic views over the river and a tranquil base from which to explore a plethora of awe-inspiring activities, all within easy access of our lodge in Livingstone, Zambia. Parallel to your experience at Thorntree, we have decided to include Lolebezi in our Zambian offer. Lolebezi is brand new to the African Bush Camps family, and so is the experience surrounding this iconic lodge, in the Lower Zambezi.

Lolebezi comes with a sense of calmness and serenity that flows from the Lower Zambezi River, right onto the doorstep of the lodge. You”ll have the opportunity to go on safari in a lush acacia forest, surrounded by nature, wildlife, and the ebb and flow of Africa’s largest rivers. Lolebezi is off the beaten track. If ever there was an experience to detox from the noise of everyday life, Lolebezi is it.
